What is PIN for my Samsung SMART TV?

Last Update date : 2017.10.24

A PIN is a numeric password that is shared between a viewer and a Samsung Smart TV. The viewer is required to provide a four digit confidential PIN to gain access to some of the Smart TV's settings. Basically, changing the PIN is for security purposes.


The PIN is also needed when you setup the Channel Lock and in previous models some apps have a feature where you can lock apps.


The default code is four zeros (0000). You need to enter the default PIN number or the code you have set when you are resetting your Samsung TV or at the time of software update.


There is an option to set or change the PIN on your Samsung Smart TV. Follow these steps to do so:


Step 1:  Switch On your Samsung TV and press the Menu key from the remote. Select System from the options and press the Enter key as shown below.






Step 2:  Select Change PIN and press the Enter key 2 on the remote.  


Change PIN  



Step 3:  A screen will be displayed. Enter the PIN which was previously set.


Note: If you haven't changed the PIN yet, the default PIN is (0000)





Step 4:  Now, enter the new PIN that you prefer. Type the new PIN again to confirm. 


Change PIN 



Step 5:  A message will then be displayed prompting that your PIN was changed successfully. Click on Close, then press the Enter key enter on the remote. 




Note: In case you have forgotten your new password and wish to reset it, please contact Samsung Customer Care using one of the options below.
